Professionals say:

"We've known for a long time how supportive our Frogstop community is of local and touring musicians. Still, it was a thrill to see how positively they responded to the idea of showing 'The Shopkeeper' here. We see this as a great opportunity to help wonderful music fans become even better, more knowledgeable supporters, and to strengthen the community to everyone's benefit."
- Greg & Cathy, Frogstop House Concerts

"The Shopkeeper" offers a sensitive, personal, and entertaining story about changes in the music industry and its impact on individual artists.  Students, professors, consumers, professionals, and audiophiles will benefit from the insight Director Rain Perry shares. James Harrison - Director, Webster University Film Series

"The topic of streaming and what it’s doing to both the film and music business is of course the elephant in the room that can no longer be ignored. This film treats it with the heart and soul that it needs to get across to the lay person WHY we need to support the arts and artists. Not just finger pointing and finger-wagging." - artist Julie Christensen

Audience members say:

Excellently done documentary—both a moving tribute and a potent conversation starter.

A love letter to music and the brave, beautiful and resilient people who make it.

Factual, warm, political, and a very important message told with heart and clarity.  

This film touched me to my core...I thought I knew more than I did and I salute you for this wake up call.

This movie is so full of heart and soul. And so damn good too!
